JW Marriott San Francisco Union Square

The Bay's whimsical business base
JW Marriott San Francisco Union Square is a colorful and urbane hotel just steps from San Francisco’s bustling Union Square, the Financial District and the Embarcadero. The porte cochere features open arches overlooking the street and a chic seating area with woven deck furniture you might expect to find poolside.

Just inside, you’re greeted with glass art flowers and shapes reminiscent of Dale Chihuly pieces. The luxurious hotel lobby on the third floor features a striking central atrium, glass elevators, mosaic marble floors, a ring of bronze sculptures and colorful chandeliers.

Staying in Union Square makes it easy to travel to nearly anywhere in the city or the East Bay — including San Francisco International Airport and Oakland International Airport  — since the BART trains and the Muni public transport system stop nearby on Powell Street. When you stay at JW Marriott in San Francisco, you’re conveniently close to all of the action.
Our Inspector's Highlights

Things to Know
• The San Francisco hotel is close to the Moscone Convention Center, the Powell BART station and attractions, such as the Embarcadero.

• To most people who live here, late summer and early fall are the best times of year in the city. You’ll be able to enjoy farmers markets, dining at outdoor cafés, strolling along the Embarcadero or a 49ers football game at Candlestick Park.

• Spring can be lovely in the city, too, but the weather is more unpredictable, and winter can be quite windy and rainy.
The Rooms
• The rooms at JW Marriott San Francisco Union Square are spacious and outfitted with many modern amenities and colorful neo-classic décor.

• Rooms feel warm and tastefully colorful with a sage and gold vine-patterned carpeting, abstract prints in hues of orange and gold and sections of the wall painted in butter and tomato.

• The rooms have large flat-screen televisions, Wi-Fi as well as a wired Internet connection; you’ll find it on the desk along with outlets for nearly any kind of video device.

• Pillow-topped beds are swathed in satiny white linens, while bathrooms — which offer separate areas for the vanity, commode and shower — are covered in brown granite.
The Restaurants
• Both the Level III restaurant and bar focus on fresh California-style cuisine.

• Have a seat at the Level III Bar, and order a quick lunch of a halibut fish tacos and a glass of wine or craft beer. Or if it’s closer to happy hour, find a spot at the tall communal table and share some conversation with other guests, along with flatbread pizza and a basil gimlet.

• Level III restaurant is an intimate space with a vibrant red and gold color scheme.

• It’s open for breakfast (dishes include Dungeness crab Benedict and vanilla crème brûlée grilled banana bread with caramelized bananas and walnuts), lunch (heirloom tomato panzanella with fresh mozzarella and arugula, and steak frites) and dinner (pepper-crusted filet mignon and seared wild king salmon).
